Functional Requirements Document Checklist

GUIDELINES FOR THE FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS DOCUMENT CHECKLIST: This checklist is provided as part of the evaluation process for the Functional Requirements Document (FRD) submitted to HUD. The checklist assists designated reviewers to determine whether specifications meet criteria acceptable to HUD upon the submission of the FRD. The objective of the evaluation process is to determine if the document complies with HUD requirements. Attached to this document is the DOCUMENT REVIEW CHECKLIST. Its purpose is to assure that documents achieve the highest standards relative to format, consistency, completeness, quality, and presentation. Submissions must include the following three documents, and must be presented in the following order: (First) DOCUMENT REVIEW CHECKLIST, (Second) FRD CHECKLIST and (Third) FRD. The document author is required to complete the two columns indicated as AUTHOR X-REFERENCE Page #/Section # and AUTHOR COMMENTS before the submission. Do NOT complete the last two columns marked as COMPLY and REVIEWER COMMENTS, since these are for the designated reviewers. AUTHOR REFERENCE (Project Identifier):
